It is very common to experience problems with menstruation
from time to time. According to textbooks, your period
should come regularly every 28 days or so, and the
blood you should expect to lose is equivalent to about
a quarter of a cup. However some women face serious
trouble during their menstrual cycle. These problems
can be related to the length or frequency of your
periods, the amount of flow, or irregular periods,
or periods that come regularly but with longer intervals
in between. Others have a "flood" of blood each month,
which makes normal life difficult and potentially
embarrassing. A few women have a combination of problems!
Some of these problems are of a serious nature and
some are not. In this section, we will discuss the
most common problems associated with menstruation.
